Sorry Wallace doesn't deserve the contract he looking for. He drops the ball way too much.

Unless something has changed, he is definitely gone.
Plax may not solve all the problems, but he sure gives the team a big target in red zone and third down. That's valuable especially when you consider the uncertainty of Heath Miller's health.

You guys have a short term memory.

Wallace had a bad year. Nevermind that his first 3 years pretty much broke records for a young receiver.

Nevermind how many TDs he scores.

Losing Wallace will hurt us unless we can find a replacement in the draft. Brown and Sanders are not going to get it done as the #1 and #2.

Hell no, Sanders struggles to be a 3.

with both Wallace and Mendy having subpar contract years, I could see both being back potentially.
Mike will not get the payday he's looking for now. He wanted $10-$11M/yr and that is likely out the window. Although, I do think there's a chance someone will still overpay for his speed in the $9-$10M range.
If he doesn't get the offer, I would gladly have Mike back in the $8M/yr range.

Mike had a bad year. Doesn't mean he can't get back to where he was. He's done it before, so he can do it again. Get his head straight, get to camp on time, work his butt off.

For Mendy, I 'm not sure what his market value is. RB's are relatively cheap and they don't last long. So even 4 years of wear on a guy coming off a knee injury last season who didn't show he was all the way back like AP is probably concerning for most teams. Couple that with the fact of how many teams would Mendy really be an upgrade for at RB and I think we could end up having him back relatively cheap.
Even though I wish he would just shut up and play, he's still our most talented back.

I agree that Wallace is very underrated here. He may be a one trick pony but his trick is just so good that the opponents' defensive scheme always needs to take him into account. It's huge advantage to the Steelers offense and it helps to open up Brown and Sanders.

I want him to stay but I just don't see it. The cap doesn't work.

I just can't see us re-signing Wallace either, especially not with Keenan Lewis being a higher priority in my opinion.

Brown is locked in, we have Cotchery and Burress (likely), and we have depth at TE, so let Wallace walk. Good riddance! I won't miss his fumbles or his ridiculous amounts of drops. I don't care if he goes to NE or BAL, or anywhere for that matter, I just don't want to see him there. We already over paid Brown, and Brown is a better WR then Wallace.

Brown is a real #2 WR, and a damn good one. Burress creates mismatch's with his size and Cotchery is a route runner with great hands. We also have Miller and Pope at TE. All we need to do is keep the vets signed for the upcoming year or two, draft a real #1, and let Wallace and Sanders walk.

I wouldn't give up on Sanders or Wallace quite yet.
I think the young guys got a little full of themselves after Hines left. They needed a real pro to keep them in check. The Young Money crew basically sucked as a group this year. The talent is their, they just need some focus.
